The Design Process
Initial Visit and Consultation
During our site visit we discuss all the issues, your tastes and requirements, to the extent of formulating a brief and setting the parameters for the design. Subsequently, we will provide you with a scaled basemap listing features of your existing site, notes for your future plans as discussed during the visit and a fee proposal for design work.
The garden design begins with artists impressions and supporting visuals to show you how the final garden will look. It acts as a discussion document allowing us to present our ideas and talk through any changes you may wish to make, as well as being a blueprint for project phasing (if necessary) and further detail design work.
Layout Plan and Specification
The Layout Plan incorporates any amendments agreed with you and is the larger scale, detailed Plan from which a landscape contractor will be able to cost, set out and build the garden. A specification, together with any necessary construction details of specific garden features, will accompany the Plan.
Planting Plan and Schedule
The Planting Plan shows the location and spacing of all the plants, both new and existing, in the design. The accompanying Plant Schedule lists the plant names, sizes and quantities and is used for costing, ordering and setting out the plants.
